I agree on the species and comments. But ironically, this plant does sometimes last in an aquarium, up to a year or more. And it is rather distinctive. I would leave it (Alex), just watch it and if it starts dying and falling apart, pull it out.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I doubt it. And when you seemost fish picking at plants, they are most likely grazing the biofilm on the leaves for food.
